The video within the above article includes snippets of the interview with Angela Motal, Jonathan's mom, and Mary Gifford, Jonathan's maternal grandmother.

Jonathan's mom, Angela Davis, at the time of Jonathan's death now goes by Angela Motal.

She said she is divorcing David Davis. It does not surprise me because Angela and David were not living together at the time of Jonathan's death. Angela and Jonathan were living with a friend.

Allen Tanner, who is Mona Yvette Nelson's court appointed attorney, said he does not expect jury selection to begin until early 2012. The reporter did indicate ultimately it is up to the judge when jury selection begins.

Mona Yvette Nelson had another court appearance this morning in Judge Jeannine Barr's State District Court 182.

Last night, I noticed Nelson was listed, among others, for the morning docket.

If this court appearance was of a routine nature (and I would think it was), the Houston area media won't do a story on it. If they do, I will post the link on this thread.

I am monitoring the Jonathan Foster case closely.

Nelson's next court appearance is scheduled for August 23, 2011.

Hi Ann, I assume she's in protective/solitary custody in the jail, correct?

Piper, regarding Nelson's custody status at the jail, I do not know. It has not been disclosed.

I would think she is in an isolated area of the jail or protective custody.

In response to Jeanie commenting, on Statement Analysis - Peter Hyatt's site, about seeing no news regarding Jonathan Foster, I posted the following:

Hi, Jeanie!

I am near the Houston, Tx area and have been monitoring the Jonathan Foster case closely as it unfolded.

Mona Yvette Nelson remains in custody at the Harris County Jail, Houston, Harris County, Tx.

She had several court appearances since her arrest. Her most recent court appearance was on 7-13-11 in Judge Jeannine Barr's State District Court 182.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for August 23, 2011.

My Houston media contacts have indicated to me if the court appearances are of a routine nature, they would not cover it, i.e., "do a story."

Nelson's attorney, Allen Tanner, indicated jury selection in Nelson's trial would probably start in early 2012.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office nor Judge Barr have indicated a trial date.

Ultimately, the trial date will be set by Judge Barr.

The most recent related news by main stream Houston media about the Jonathan Foster case was in May, 2011.

A local Houston TV station did an interview with Angela Motal (she now goes by Motal versus Davis) and Mary Gifford, Jonathan's maternal grandmother. It includes an article and about a four minute video.

For your info, there is a thread set up for Jonathan Foster at Reality Chatter (RC) which I keep updated.

Also, there are several threads that Valhall of The Hinky Meter has set up for Jonathan Foster. Valhall writes articles regarding this case as warranted. I keep those updated also.

The Link to the most recent Houston media article/video is posted at Reality Chatter and The Hinky Meter.

You can find it on Page 8 of Jonathan's thread at RC. See Ann-Tx posted on Sun Jun 26, 2011 12:50 pm

This is the Link to Jonathan's thread at Reality Chatter:

Jonathan is also featured on the Homepage of RC. He was at the top of the page until the Casey Anthony trial started. You will have to scroll down. Hopefully, he will be at the top of the Homepage soon.

UPDATE:

This morning, Monday, 3-26-12, I called and spoke with Judge Jeannine Barr's Court Clerk.
(182nd Criminal Court - State District Court - Houston, TX).

The following is an update:

As previously scheduled, Mona Nelson's next court date is 4-11-2012. It is a Disposition Hearing.

Mona Nelson's tentative trial date of 5/7/12 was set in October, 2011. It has been taken off of Judge Jeannine Barr's court docket for that date.

It is a possibility that on 4-11-12, a new trial date will be set. It depends upon the State and Defense at the Disposition Hearing.


I will continue to monitor the status of this case.

In the above post on Facebook, I had to use my avatar as there were no pictures of Jonathan that showed up when I posted the Link to his thread at RC.

Only about 7 avatars and 3 smilies showed up for a Thumbnail selection.

I checked the first 2 pages of this thread and there are no still pictures of Jonathan posted in the comments until the bottom of Page 2.

The jury trial date for Mona Yvette Nelson is May 6, 2013.


In the interim, I would like to re-post a few things.

This is the Link to an article and videos that were on the Homepage of Reality Chatter
for several months in 2011.

http://www.realitychatter.com/t3011-jonathan-paul-foster

The embedded video of the Press Conference by the Houston Police Department (HPD)
in the article dated 1/18/11 (above Link) no longer plays. KTRK (ABC) - Houston has
since changed their video format. I assume it is why the embedded video will not play.

If you would like to watch the video on a larger video screen or full screen, here is a direct Link to the 12/30/2010 HPD Press Conference video:

Freckles, this is a heinous crime.

No motive has been disclosed yet; it will come out at trial.

In my opinion, Mona Y. Nelson has to be pure evil to have murdered Jonathan, an innocent 12 year old child. There is evidence that she used a torch; don't know if it was before or after she killed Jonathan.

Once again, it will come out at trial.

Hopefully, the Houston media will cover this trial closely. To my knowledge, this trial will not be "live streamed.'

In an Ex Parte Motion For Permission To Expend County Funds For Purposes Of Hiring Expert For Assistance submitted by Allen Tanner, Attorney for Defendant (Mona Yvette Nelson), the following was granted by Judge Jeannie Barr on 3/8/2013:

Defense can hire Dr. Paul Radelat, a Pathologist, to assist in the defense.

Defense requested $500 per hour; Judge Barr granted $250 per hour.

Said amount of compensation to Dr. Radelat is not to exceed $2,500 unless prior approval is sought from the Court to expend further funds.

The Defense (Allen Tanner) requested $5,000.

Per the Harris County District Clerk's Office (Houston, Harris County, TX), Mona Nelson's trial is scheduled to start on Monday, 8/12/13.

I verified this with Judge Jeannine Barr's clerk this afternoon.

There will be no jury. Nelson made the decision to have her trial with the presiding judge which is Judge Barr.

Connie Spence (Harris County District Attorney's Office) will be prosecuting this case.

The State is not seeking the death penalty!


Per trial docket for Judge Barr, trial starts at 9 a.m. CDT -

Accused killer declines jury trial for capital murder case

Updated at 05:28 PM today
August 9, 2013

by Deborah Wrigley
KTRK - Houston, TX


HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Two and a half years ago, a 12-year-old Houston boy was kidnapped and killed. On Monday, his accused killer will go on trial for capital murder.

Mona Nelson will not be tried by a jury, but by a judge. That was her choice, but in a capital murder trial it's almost never done.


Snipped:

"The state only has to prove the case to one person rather than having to convince 12 persons," Spence explained.

Snipped:

The state is not asking for the death penalty if she's convicted.

Thanks for the updates, Ann - Tx.

I followed this case closely when Jonathan was first reported missing, until they found his remains.

I've just checked in here and there since, but I wish there were move coverage on it.

It's a cruel, sad case.  I hope there is some justice for Jonathan at the end.

I don't know what to make of her deciding on a trial by judge only.

Mona Nelson trial

Post by Ann - Tx on Tue Aug 13, 2013 12:04 am


Hi, Nan11.

Welcome to Realty Chatter!

Regarding the updates, you are welcome. I intend to keep this thread updated with articles from the Houston media. By evening, I should have the updates for a given day posted. Some days I'll have to be out of town but should be back by evening.

I was very surprised that Nelson selected a trial by judge; even against her attorney's advice.

I hope the Houston media will cover this trial in detail.  I wish this trial was "live streamed."  Oh well . . . we will have to rely on the media for updates.  

I planned to attend this trial when it was set and trial date changed twice.  However, I am not able to attend this trial date.  It would be nice if someone from the greater Houston area (and beyond) could attend and do daily reports here or at Websleuths.

Trial of woman accused of kidnapping, killing 12-year-old Houston boy begins

HOUSTON—The trial of a woman accused of kidnapping and killing a 12-year-old Houston boy on Christmas Eve in 2010 begins Tuesday.

Mona Yvette Nelson was charged with capital murder in the death of Jonathan Foster. Nelson has chosen to be tried by a judge, not a jury. Her attorney said he advised her against it.

Police said the 44-year-old maintenance worker kidnapped and killed Jonathan, then burned his body. Nelson admitted to discarding the boy’s body, but said she did not kill him.

Defense seeks to throw out murder suspect's statements

By Cindy Horswell | August 12, 2013 | Updated: August 12, 2013 8:56pm
Houston Chronicle - Houston, TX




Photo By Mayra Beltran/Houston Chronicle
Mona Nelson, accused of killing 12-year-old Jonathan Foster,
is in court for pretrial motions in her Capitol Murder case at
Harris County Crimminal Courthouse on Monday, August 12, 2013
in Houston.


The defense in a capital murder case on Monday asked a Houston judge to quash statements made by the woman accused of the kidnap-murder of a 12-year-old boy on Christmas Eve 2010, saying she was sick and exhausted after hours of interrogation.

The defendant, Mona Nelson, has taken the unusual step of having her capital murder case heard by a judge, not a jury. The trial opened Monday before Houston District Judge Jeannine Barr.

In court, Nelson's attorney, Allen Tanner, detailed how Houston police investigators questioned his client over a 17-hour period at police headquarters or her home where evidence was being collected before finally serving the woman with an arrest warrant in Jonathan Foster's death.

Trial of woman accused of killing Houston boy set to begin

Published On: Aug 12 2013 11:48:29 AM CDT   Updated On: Aug 12 2013 08:24:23 PM CDT

KTRK (NBC) - Houston, TX






HOUSTON -  
Pre-trial motions were held Monday in the case of a woman accused of killing a 12-year-old boy almost three years ago.


Snipped:

Her defense counsel Allen Tanner said he advised against a bench trial.

"She's a strong minded woman and she said I just want the judge to hear my case and make a decision. I would have preferred to have a jury just because you have some jurors that look at things and see things that other jurors didn't see," said Tanner. "I think it's always better to have 12 people."

Houston Media Links - Homepages

Post by Ann - Tx on Tue Aug 13, 2013 3:44 am


I would like to share Links to the Homepage of the primary Houston media outlets who will be covering this trial. Most "live stream" their News - CDT (Central Daylight Time).

Updates are usually reported at 11 a.m, 12 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. News (TV) and various times on-line. All are CDT.

The early morning news reports (usually starting at 4 a.m or 4:30 a.m.) are usually from the 10 p.m. News.

I don't have time to post all of the "Live Stream" Links for each media outlet but one can find it on the Homepage (if it is "live streamed").

There are also phone apps available.

Thank you for the welcome, and for all the great links and videos.

I was so disappointed when I heard that they weren't going to live steam the trial.  I have never seen a trial in front of a judge only.

Your links to the live stream news broadcasts with what times to watch for them is much appreciated, and very thoughtful.  

Besides all the horrible things that were done to young Jonathan, one of the things that upsets me most is thinking of her going to his home--after she allegedly murdered him--and hanging around offering her condolences and support to his devastated mother.  That has to be an example of how low a person can go.

I join you in hoping for Justice for Jonathan!
